From Rachael:
A few late additions:
  • Paul had forgotten that he had planted green onions - they will be ready for Friday's pickup! In the 'onions' section
    They were the last local item needed for the Kim chi! If you are interested in getting together to make a big batch for sharing, please let me know!
  • Viola Martin's Sweet Keeper Squash are on the order form. They are lovely to decorate your house, they 'keep' well as their name suggests and They are tasty too! In the 'squash' section
  • Last, but certainly not least is fresh pressed unpasteurized grape juice from Niagara! It's in the 'other' section
The description from Mary Jane:
Well we thought the fruit season was over in September but we now have something new. This is the first year that Eva and Rene had some of their grapes pressed into juice!

The juice is made from a combination of Pinot Noir and Table grapes. It is light pink in colour. It has a slight cloudiness to it (not quite as much as cider) since it has not been strained, filtered or sulphited. Because it is unpasteurized it will leave a little 'prickly' feeling on your tongue. It will slowly continue to get more 'prickly' while in the fridge but the progression can be halted in the freezer. This is a nice a sweet juice that will taste very different from steamed grape juices.

In Switzerland and Germany this juice is called 'Sauser'. People line up at the restaurants to get their glass of Sauser. They only serve it while in season!

This juice can be frozen to use at a later date like Christmas and New Years (or birthdays). Just be sure to pour some off the top to leave room for expansion.
